Oh yeah. Google earth won't show it :-). NO I did not put it there. There is more than one sign.


That thing in the center of the picture has got to be either a "disguised" cell tower or the worlds most ugly tree.


On former Coe Rail ROW? Between Walled Lake and New Hudson?

No, further south (and east) than that. This line was cut in half by another railroad . No diamond , just cut.

Come north. This route had been declared redundant after a faster double track was built near by.

We need to go further north. The offending railroad line was constructed in about a year (1922/1923). The railroad started the work but turned it over to contractors.

Agreed, the former Detroit, Delray and Dearborn Railroad along Robert Street in east-west direction in Melvindale where it later split by the DT&I RR Dearborn Branch.

Bingo ! The former D.D.& D. branch. Was made obsolete by the new double track Junction yard branch. Also ran where Greenfield Village is so, railrod1949 is right also, sort of :-).
